Perhaps the zesty sauce is expensive and they are under instructions to not give it out unless requested.
Yeah, I think that's plausible. It's also possible to just forget if it isn't an extremely common thing.

Really, this is a non-issue.


To you perhaps, but one container is barely enough for a medium order. And really, as customer service personnel, isn't it better to ask? I don't think it's great policy to hide condiment/sauces from customers.
I think, if you know you want something, you should be the one to ask for it. Otherwise they could spend hours listing things you may or may not need.

Why didn't you check and see if it was there and then ask for it yourself if you cared so much? Clearly, if you care enough to start a thread on this subject, you should care enough to check.

Zesty sauce is a random thing to associate with onion rings that I can't possibly think of it as a default. The default is ketchup.

To everyone but you. This is the First Worldiest of First World problems. I can't believe you actually started a thread about it.

Re: Zesty Sauce With My Onion Rings

varies from local franchise owner to owner with regards to sauce, anyway. Some will give you one or two no problem, others are dicks about it and will charge a quarter a sauce. And then there are even signs sometimes that tell you if you got a 4-piece nugget, you get one sauce, 10-piece gets you two, etc.

Know they cost money, but is the hostile attitude worth driving customers elsewhere when the potential loss is about 10 cents anyway (if that) and not many customers would ask for it without ordering something that it should come with anyway...

Mostly an annoyance because I like the burger king sweet and sour sauce with my fries

^ I know about the "some owners" problem.

One Little Caesars had them weighing every topping on a scale before putting them on the pizza. D'oh, one pepperoni too many!

this is Misc. Is there some kind of minimum "very serious subject" standard that the thread has to meet? If so, why is there a what are you eating/drinking thread?

Did I shut your thread down? No, I just said it was silly thing to complain about and start a thread about. Just ask for the stupid sauce.

Until a Burger King is the only place you can easily walk to for a simple cheeseburger, and then they close the store meaning you can no longer walk anywhere to get a simple cheeseburger, I don't think you have any thing to be complaining about.

This post was both a little too zesty and too saucy.
